In Bruxelles I am used to bikers making their own path through the lanes but in Paris they speed very fast.

I started to see if I could catch some of these dare devils in their act from the car but I did not really succeed. I kept on thinking about a comment from Philip (Deats) who said that riding a scooter in Vietnam was suicidal and there would not go two day before you would see the first dead guy and I wondered how many fatal accidents they have here in Paris a year.

At one point the traffic in my direction was completely stopped and they communicated a 29 minutes delay on their billboards. Finally getting to the accident I could see that it had been a bike that had been squeezed; I felt like it had to come.
After this accident, the traffic went well again and I headed towards Toulouse 1000 km from Brussels.
